Veryst Engineering is proud to have participated in COMSOL Day: Biomedical Devices, a free, online event that took place on Tuesday, May 11, 2021.
Dr. Nagi Elabbasi moderated a panel discussion on "Simulation Software's Remarkably Increased Role in Inventing, Developing, and Certifying Medical Device Designs." As COMSOL describes this growing role: "The integration of simulation software has now reached the stage where it has become an integral part of all reporting mechanisms required to ascertain a device's operation, efficacy, and safety through mechanisms such as those provided by the FDA."
Dr. Alireza Kermani also spoke at COMSOL Day about "Blood Damage Modeling of FDA Benchmark Nozzle."
Hemolysis caused by flow-induced mechanical damage to red blood cells is a concern in devices that involve transporting blood. Dr. Kermani discussed how Veryst used hemolysis mathematical models to evaluate the effect of modifications to the device geometry on blood damage, using the FDA nozzle as the benchmark.
